Bamboo Solutions Closes Multiple Record Deals in the U.S. Federal Sector for 2011

Bamboo’s Enterprise Program Supports Government Requirement for Rapid Deployment

Bamboo Solutions, the leading provider of solutions for Microsoft® SharePoint®, reports significant gains in the Federal sector in FY 2011. Many of these enterprise-level agreements with the US Army, Secretary of Defense, FAA, NIH and others are among the largest opportunities booked in company history. As government enterprises continue to reduce budgets by decommissioning legacy ECM applications, Bamboo anticipates continued aggressive growth in this market.

“Bamboo created the ‘Enterprise Program’ to serve strategic customers that require access to the wider Bamboo portfolio of products, and that routinely deploy critical SharePoint-based solutions to thousands of users,” says Michael Schwien, Bamboo Chief Executive Officer.

The Federal Government is the largest vertical market for Bamboo, and the requirements of customers in this sector have helped drive the development of many new applications and solutions. Common SharePoint-based solutions that have accelerated this trend include Master Calendar Integration, Enterprise Collaborative Project Management, Knowledge Management, Issue tracking, and Executive Dashboards (based on data aggregated from both SharePoint and non-SharePoint sources).

“Federal agencies and DoD organizations were among the first enterprise adopters of SharePoint, so it is natural that they would embrace Bamboo Solutions as the de facto standard for rapid SharePoint solution deployment,” says Tom Polivka, Bamboo Enterprise Account Director. “In the past, thousands of users have chosen individual Bamboo Web Parts as an alternative to custom Web Part development. As these same customers are now looking to replace major legacy ECM applications with SharePoint, Bamboo is there to support them with rapid-deployment frameworks that get solutions up and running without programming.”

Responding to public and private sector customers, Bamboo has adopted a multi-pillar approach to rapid application deployment: Collaborative Project Management, Knowledge Management, Case Management, and the latest pillar in this strategy, Community Management. Bamboo’s latest product – Community Central – connects enterprise SharePoint users via best-in-class blogs, forums, and other social media channels. Information captured via Community Central can also be added to an Enterprise Knowledge Base managed by Bamboo’s Knowledge Management Suite.
